Sunday Gravy

Guilty Glutton | Mar 14, 2012 02:47 PM

Is there any restaurant in the Boston/Cambridge area that serves Sunday gravy? It's the traditional centerpiece of an Italian-American family Sunday dinner, with meatballs, sausage, and pork cooked all day in a tomato sauce.

So far I've found three places with a Sunday gravy style dish: Prezza has an excellent "homemade meatballs, sausage, ribs, tomato and creamy polenta" (you can substitute pasta for the polenta). The meat falls off the ribs and is very tender from cooking in the gravy. Strega on the Waterfront serves, as a Sunday special, meatballs, Italian sausage and pork meat simmered in a San Marzano tomato sauce. The pork meat is especially flavorful. And Il Panino offers a "quattro carni ragu" with homemade meatball, sausage, brasciola, and pork short ribs, which I have not yet tried.

Are there any other restaurants that serve a Sunday gravy style dish?
